Charles James Paxman was born February 21, 1948 to William Philo Paxman and Orie Vesta Gower in Augusta, Maine.  He was the oldest of 7 children.  Family meant a lot to Charlie.  He passed away February 21, 2021 at his home near Collins, Missouri.

He married Linda Mcrune and started his own family.  From this marriage two sons were born, Kevin and Steven.

In 1985 Charlie wanted to make a change in his life and moved to Vermont to run a dairy farm.  At this time he remarried Gail Pilsbury and her daughter Becky came into his life and he accepted her as his own.

In 1990 Charlie took his family and moved to Missouri where he bought his farm in Humansville.  Not only was he a family man, but also a business man.  He spent many years logging, selling firewood and bag wood all over the area.  Charlie enjoyed many outdoor activities among them were trout fishing and hunting.

Charlie was preceded in death by his parents, William and Orie Paxman; siblings, Shirley Paxman and Cindy Lou Paxman and daughter, Rebecca Pilsbury

Each of us have our memories with and about Charlie.  Some of us more than others, but each one of them are special moments we will hold with us forever.  We love you Charlie.  You are already so sorely missed.  May God bless you and keep you while you wait for us! Amen.
